Macro Monday: Baby plums


Monday 20 April, 2015 by Uncle Spike

My posting for Macro Monday.

Hope you all like it 🙂




The plum trees are one of the first of the early summer fruits, and are often eaten here when they are still hard, bitter and green, even will salt, but leave the fruit on the tree, two of our trees will produce deep red plums.

Of course like all things in farming life, it’s a battle against nature. With the plums left to mature sweet, it’s me verses the chickens, who will happily munch their way through  a few trees laden with plums, apricots, cherries, mulberry’s and figs – bless ’em!

  1. That first picture looks like a green acorn to me.
    I am pretty sure you offered to do a guest post on my languishing blog, or am I hallucinating again? Recovering from a head injury on top of having MS -well, they are doing this unpleasant synergistic thing. Anyway, lemme know if you are up for writing a little something.
    😉 m & jb who wonders how you are going to feature her prominently, and are you going to interview her, and does she need a new collar for the occasion.

    Chickens are great for fallen fruit. Here I lose lots of fruit to the song birds residing in my trees.

    In Scotland I loved plums and for many years after we came to Australia plums were not on the menu. In the last few years plums have been widely available – both black and red – but the taste is different. I don’t think it’s me, but definitely not the taste I remember from the UK.. These ones, whatever colour they happen to be, are just bland – very little taste, Disappointing, really.


  5. I love seeing the new growth in Spring. 🙂


  6. Loads of new growth on that plum .. lots more fruit is on the way.


...waiting to hear from you...
